So many cars, and so little time... my Granddad and I spent two to three nights a week together from the time I was 8 years old through my early 20's. Words cannot express how much he has meant to me in my lifetime and he will be remembered for generations to come.

Bob has been a great friend to my dad my entire life. I’ve never witnessed a more genuine example of friendship than the friendship they shared. If I am with my dad for more than an hour, it’s a given, Bob’s name will be mentioned, usually more than once. He was there for not just my dad, but our whole family; through thick and thin, good times and bad, for the highest highs and the lowest lows. I know that my dad loved him like a brother and thought the world of him. I have the utmost respect for Bob and the person that he was. He was a blessing in our lives and will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
So sorry for your loss. I saw the great love you had for your Dad and loved one. He will be greatly missed but live on in each of you. Love and prayers
